Meet Our Fearless Leader: Laura Jakes


Laura has been part of the advertising scene in Northwest Ohio for many years. She received a BA in graphic design with a minor in marketing from Bowling Green State University. After decades of skill building and moving up the ad agency ranks as both an art and creative director, Laura decided to use the best of what she had gained from her experiences to forge her own path. She started LJ Creates in 2010, and it has grown ever since—now with a full team of account managers and creative talent. Laura has won numerous Addy awards, Crystal awards and health care advertising awards during her career. In addition to leading LJ Creates, Laura serves the local community she loves as president of the Sylvania Arts Commission.
